Yes, that's what I was saying about #4. I get the moment but focus point could have been better selected imho because the groom's flowers, where the focus is, are not part of the photos story. But it kinda works and it IS a moment
True, Focusing on the main bunch may have worked better.I'm shooting primes wide open and still working on choosing the right focus point when things a happening without your input, but that 's what keeping it interesting right? I will try to get both given a similar situation next. That way I will have options.

I think it may just be my style, but id like to see them with a bit of a bump in exposure.
4 I would like the focus on her flowers rather than his, but hindsight is 20/20 right?
I will open up the blacks a bit and see how it looks to me, thanks.

4) Is the groom's flower in focus? I like the effect you're going for
5) I wish you had focus on the other kid in the back
6) Is that a traditional plate of wedding food? Just curious. Never seen curry and rice in a heart shape before haha
The idea moment I just missed, they just started heading off in a direction completely in unison The 5D just did not lock quick enough
Yep pretty much the standard tradition indian food around here. The heart was too cute
It was a tasty snack

eh, I was gonna say something. But i think issues of uncle bobs have been beaten to death already. I think the rest of the people are just saying you commenting will have no impact on the endless supply of uncle bobs + it'll probably hurt some feelings. But that aside, uncle bobs are just an obstacle that good photographers learn to deal with.
Personally I used relatively long lens and kept back but many people did not. As you say these are issues that need to be managed.
A competent photographer should not really have an issue with other people shooting. His/Her work should stand head and shoulder above the guests otherwise they may be in the wrong business or price bracket.
It is not just a day for the bride and groom, it is a day for the family and friends also.
The only problem I have is split-focus when shooting formals and engaging with the guest and a few polite words will fix that.
